    hmmm. let me go check mine now.
    Quick question, would it not be easier to measure the diameter. the measurement would be more exact.

    Default Re: 48mm Tow Balls warning

    I remember reading this article many moons ago and yesterday my friend was using my trailer when the 5 M trailer with bricks and stones come off, smashed his Pathfinder's back window and damaged the 5th door as well. I thought it was the trailer itself but now Im relieved to see that it could rather be a problem on his tow ball and not the trailer itself.

    Wow, that's scary. For the benefit of others who may want to check, here's the actual SANS 1505 requirement for towballs and couplers. These are 3 separate parts to the code, hence the same numbering.
